. thanks for staying with us for the next hour. four years ago tonight, it was actually the night after the '08 presidential election. we voted november 4th. we vote november 6th this time. so november 5th was the night after barack obama had just walloped john mccain in that year's presidential election. you remember the electoral college map. the total 365 electoral votes for obama and only 173 for john mccain. barack obama won that presidential election with almost 100 electoral votes to spare. after that emotional victory on this night four years ago, the country started to appreciate what had just happened in that historic election toward what was going to happen next. now that we had barack obama as not just a candidate or as the winner, but as the next president, as the successor of two terms of george bush. >> elections have consequences. elections are not just the end of the campaign. the concession speech,s victory speech, these are the sounds of a starting pistol for what now begin. it's not just about winning a contest. we're hiring someone to start work. elections have cons
will be tomorrow. just in terms of the president's path. can you take us down that path? >> i can. but i have to leave all this partisan -- >> please do. >> they're going to start voting in new hampshire in a couple hours. the main event is tomorrow as we look at the map. it's got a file up there that i'm going to have to close and make it go away, i can handle that with the map. one thing we know, here's the map from 2008. this is election night. we're not going to have this. we're going to have a much closer, much more competitive election. who can get to 270. you have to say this. the president has an easier path, and the president, if you're a betting person, the money would be safer on the president. it takes 270 to win. we have the president at 237. those are the dark blue states. governor romney at 270, same thing. the question is, who can get to 270 easiest? the president is ending in three midwestern states, wisconsin, ohio and iowa. if he wins those three. nothing else changes, game over. that's why he's there. all of the candidates, you know what they think they need, that's for th
of the u.s. economy. it's tuesday, november 6th, election day, 2012. "squawk box" begins right now. >>> good morning. welcome to "squawk box." i'm becky quick along with joe kernen and andrew ross sorkin and the polls are opening in various parts of the east coast as we speak. some 30 million americans have already voted, including the folks in the tiny village of dixville notch. this follows tradition, they voted just after midnight and with the lowest turnout in almost 50 years, this time around it was a tie. five votes for president obama, five for governor romney. back in 2008, president obama defeated john mccain 16-5. let's take a look at the map. 270 electoral votes are needed to win. nbc news now shows president obama with 237 likely. romney 206. and 95 in the toss-up column, so it is going to be a very long evening, andrew. >> i think we'll be staying up pretty late and then we'll be back at it tomorrow morning. but cnbc's team of reporters has the country covered this morning. stationed in battleground states, campaign headquarters and here at election central. among our
heard across the country deciding who will lead us for the next four years, it's a big decision. president obama making an emotional, final pitch last night in the state that launched him on the road to the white house in 2008. which way will iowa go this time around? what does that mean for the race overall? we are going to talk about that. plus can't forget this one, the big battleground state of ohio, which could decide this presidential election. governor romney making his final appeal to ohio voters in just about 40 minutes, it's all happening now. speaking of what's happening now. democracy is happening now, right? jon: it sure is all across the country. jenna: did you vote yet. jon: i did not. i'm going to do it after the show today. jenna: just making sure. you get a pass for that. we are glad you're with us, everybody, on this very important election day, 2012. we've heard just about everything, right, up until this point. today we are going to hear more from governor romney. the president potentially, although he's going to keep things kind of quiet in chicago where he

to get the information about what motivated people to vote, which will give us some indication of which way things are leaning, perhaps, and also the balance of power i'll be looking at this evening. senate, house, will they stay the way they are now or change? bill: it's going to be a great night, fascinating every time. 6:00 eastern time is when we start. have a great day. "happening now" starts right now. martha: we'll see you then. jon: we begin with brand-new stories and breaking news. jenna: it's up to you today, voters making their voices heard across the country deciding who will lead us for the next four years, it's a big decision. president obama making an emotional, final pitch last night in the state that launched him on the road to the white house in 2008. which way will iowa go this time around? what does that mean for the race overall? we are going to talk about that. plus can't forget this one, the big battleground state of ohio, which could decide this presidential election. governor romney making his final appeal to ohio voters in just about 40 minutes, it's a
it one more push today here on the "full court press." good to have you with us but let's start out with all of the latest this election day from lisa ferguson. today's current news update. she's standing by in los angeles. hi lisa. good morning. >> hey bill, good morning everyone. kind of hard to believe it's finally here but today is the day. more than a year of campaigning and billions of dollars spent on this election. and now it's all up to you. president obama is officially off the trail. he held an emotional final rally in iowa last night. where he got a little teary eyed in the state that started it all. >> but iowa, we're here tonight because we've got more work to do. we're not done yet on this journey. we've got more road to travel. >> today, the president is keeping his election day tradition of shooting some hoops then he holds his election night rally in chicago. mayor romney though is not calling it quits just yet. he starts the day off by voting in belmont massachusetts. then it is on to eve
creation? >> well, from a corporate standpoint, yes, maria, because most u.s. corporations are sitting on cash. as you saw profit margins hitting all-time highs. they're clearly not hiring a lot. at the end of the day, this whole economy and the stock market is about jobs. the market could be up even more if we start to see some job creation, but we can't be bidding stocks higher unless we start to see some in flows from our private client friends, who by the way, don't buy bond funds. we still think there's a lot of work to do on the investment side in terms of building further fundamental clarity with respect to the option of buying equities versus selling them. >> so you're not jumping on this bandwagon today, this rally we're seeing here? >> no, for one thing, we are just relieved that all of this election stuff is over. that's number one. number two, let's get back to the business of america and stocks going up in america as an asset looking very well on a longer term perspective. however, on a near-term basis, the market in our belief is well ahead of historical norms in terms of
romney is better for business. we're up 81 points. connell: bill richardson and joining us first of former democratic governor of new mexico. good to see you. look at the day dead the slight edge to obama's but what do sure biggest concern today? what is the biggest worry? >> turnout that the election operation is not up to par but i think it is. the hispanic states will cover the president and he will be reelected. nearly 290 votes with the hispanic vote over 70% once again it is a turn out issued to make the difference. connell: you think nevada colorado go to obama and he still wins ohio? >> yes. i am not perfect but the hispanic vote, obviously the storm is a massive tragedy to slow the governor's momentum. the president looked presidential. those two factors will make the difference. connell: looking at the possibilipossibili ty is the rest of the hour but the economic course 10 the former energy secretary, gas prices every day at the all-time high on election day. that have a negative effect at all for the president? >> and not think the voters blame presidents for gas pric
49% to 38%. that's well within the margin of error. newt gingrich joins us. before we talk about those, dixville and about 59 men's? >> it's great. it's the american drama. after all the talk, all the ads, all the upon -- ponficating, the american people get to tell us. >> we will get to new hampshire in a second. new national policy just in, gov. romney up by one. i mean, it's tied. do these national polls mean anything right now or should we be focusing on these state by state? >> i don't think anything means anything you can reeye on. there are two alternative universes out there. if you believe, as one national poll did two days ago, that there is going to be an 11% more democratic voting base, they got to a tie between romney and obama by saying it will the democrats 1 is% more likely to vote. that's higher than 2008. that's in conceivable. you have to wonder where their brain was at. on the other hand, if you believe as i do, as a lot of other key players do that the energy, the enthusiasm, the drive is on the romney side, i'll give you one example. they are talking about d
it tells us very much, if anything about tomorrow. and like you said, at the end of the piece, it's 700,000 votes that will be cast in new hampshire tomorrow. i don't think, though, it will be quite as close as people think it will be. what we've seen in the national polls and also in the state polls is a little bit of an uptick for obama. i think that the democrats are cautiously optimistic about tomorrow. and mitt romney is hoping that everything breaks in his favor. but that's a long shot. it's a real long shot. so i think at this hour, going into tomorrow, the democrats have a little bit of wind at their back. >> ben smith, what i thought was interesting about that result in dixville notch, the reality is, all the independents had voted for barack obama and not mitt romney. is that an ominous sign for mitt romney? >> i'm not sure i want to read a whole lot into that. i think the absolute nightmare scenario for this election is what you just saw there, something close to a tie, something that does not resolve tomorrow and that is something that is something both campaigns are genuine
reaction via tweets and through phone calls. we thank you for joining us today. here is the house of representatives. the speaker pro tempore: the house will be in order. the chair lays before the house a communication from the speaker. the speaker's rooms, washington, d.c. november 6, 2012. i hereby appoint the honorable steven c. latourette to act as speaker pro tempore on this day. signed, john a. boehner, speaker of the house of representatives. the speaker pro tempore: the prayer today will be offered by our guest chaplain, the reverend dr. kirk erhardt, washington, d.c. the chaplain: let us pray. god who exists within each one of us and binds us together as one people, be with us on this election day as we exercise our responsibility to choose our leaders and set a trajectory into the future. let us be mindful and respectful of the views of those who vote for someone else. open our minds to realize that although we are a nation filled with diverse philosophies, our common motive is to make this country a fruitful and peace filled nation allowing all people the opportunity to
